Spylls: Hunspell ported to Python
Spylls is an effort of porting prominent spellcheckers into clear, well-structured, well-documented Python. It is intended to be useful both as a library and as some kind of "reference (or investigatory, if you will) implementation". Currently, only Hunspell is ported.
Hunspell is a long-living, complicated, almost undocumented piece of software, and it was our feeling that the significant part of human knowledge is somehow "locked" in a form of a large C++ project. That's how Spylls was born: as an attempt to "unlock" it, via well-structured and well-documented implementation in a high-level language.
Usage as a library
$ pip install spylls
from spylls.hunspell import Dictionary # en_US dictionary is distributed with spylls # See docs to load other dictionaries dictionary = Dictionary.from_files('en_US') print(dictionary.lookup('spylls')) # False for suggestion in dictionary.suggest('spylls'): print(suggestion) # spells # spills
